From Marvel: “STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF X-MEN AND RIGHT INTO THE JUGULAR! Jubilee is about as far away from the ideal X-Man as it is possible for a 17-year-old minty fresh vampire to be. While the X-Men try to find a way to give her as normal a life as is inhumanly feasible, her decidedly abnormal vampire cravings will not be denied. Between that and her newfound powers, she’s winning the fights but not the popularity contests among most of the other X-Kids. Most…but not all. And just when Jubilee starts to think that there is no place for her anywhere, a group of vampire women make her an offer she can’t refuse. It seems like the perfect solution…unless Wolverine has anything to say about it!”

While it should perhaps be called ‘Jubilee and Wolverine’ instead of the other way around, I found this to be an extremely well-written issue, dealing quite effectively with the fallout of the vampire infestations of ‘X-Men’.

I don’t necessarily like what was done to Jubilee, but I do like how Kathryn Immonen is handling it, as well as some fun one liners.

“It’s time to do this my way.”

Indeed.

Anyone else care to share their reactions?

  1. If you ask me, I wish we could see this turn into a monthly series, instead of the unnecessary Wolverine The Best There is book. I feel that this book hits close to home regarding the relationship between Wolverine and Jubilee. I enjoyed the appearance of Armor and Pixie as well, since they have both been Wolverine’s sidekicks as of late.

    Someone on this site referred to the “Wolverine’s angels”. I assume he or she was talking about Logan’s surrogate daughters and sidekicks. Well I saw pretty much all of them in this book, with the exception of his first side kick Katherine Pryde. I would like to see this book continue past four issues, let’s hope somebody at Marvel pushes for this.

    My only complaint is that Jubilee says she is seventeen. In my opinion she should at least be nineteen or twenty, but that is a minor complaint I suppose.
